I run gnumeric 1.0.8 on Debian unstable. In the insert -> object

there diagnostic tools for the oaf stuff? Unfortunately, there are no
manpages for the oaf-* tools.

I have not personally tried it but I'd suspect that there is an
installation problem of some sort.  The fact that you see the
abiword component in the list is hopeful.  The question remains as
to why the invocation fails.  Have a look at abiword's oaf file and
try to run the command listed there manually.  Its a shot in the
dark, but should be a reasonable starting point.
